Are you a daredevil? I’m not one at all, but I admire people who are. Although I do think about their poor mothers a lot. I love amusement park thrill rides, especially the ones that go super-fast, but I realize they’re pretty tame and don’t exactly count as an extreme sport.
It’s looking as though both of my girls are going to be far greater risk-takers than I ever was, so I won’t be at all surprised if I see them in a video like “Carving the Mountains” some day. The video was filmed by Juan Rayos and features the Longboard Girls Crew in the hills surrounding Madrid. Longboards are, as far as I can tell, a longer version of the skateboard. Or maybe they’re more closely related to surf boards?
The video has such a great feel to it, from the way the camera moves so gracefully with the girls as they speed along, to the soundtrack by the Decemberists. Watching this inspires me, and it also makes me proud of how far girls have come.
